Pattern:I Heart Cardigans by Tanis Lavallee
Yarn:Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label in Chris Grey
Over the summer Tanis asked me to test her newest design I Heart Cardigans
Sometimes I swear Tanis is in my head because she always seems to design the perfect garment that I am dreaming about at that point and time. She hit the nail on the head with I Heart Cardigans
A cozy worsted weight cardiganized version of I Heart Aran with tons of cabley goodness and that shawl collar I love so much. This cardigan couldn’t get any better….. or could it?
When choosing a colour for my cardigan I knew I wanted something neutral. A colour that would go with anything yet still looking amazing on its own.
When Tanis’ Green Label arrived in her new colourway Chris Grey I was in heaven. A soft grey with a very subtle green throughout to give it that little pop.
Green Label is superwash and definitely grows when blocking. I was terrified to put my gorgeous cardi in the dryer as recommended on the ball band but Tanis assured me it would be ok. I kept a VERY close eye on it and ended up having to leaving it in a bit longer in my old machine to get it back to normal size.
My only mods while knitting were to add a bit of length to the body and sleeves to accommodate my long torso and arms. I also omitted the button holes altogether.
The perfect cardigan that has seen a lot of wear already and will continue to through Autumn and Winter.
If you happen to be at Knit East in a few weeks you’ll get to see it in action.
